Good food and very good service, a few of the items were a little bland for my taste but the majority of it was very well prepared and presented. The prices were reasonable and you got a lot for money.

We had reservations and we live this place but we’ve noticed the service is inconsistent. We waited a long time for our drinks; my husband forgot that even ordered a beer when it finally came. We finished our chips and had to wait a long time for more chips and my pop. The waitress was very nice and apologized for the long waits when she brought me the bill. It didn’t seem like they were that busy and why didn’t she apologize before handing me the bill?

Our 1st time going isn't going to be our last. Can't wait to go back and try more things. Great place for a date night. We went for Our anniversary and told our family how good it was and how we should go together next time.

Super food and service but they need to figure out if they are going to be a loud very noisy sports bar or a solid Latino food restaurant.

Great service, great ambiance, lots of people having fun. Low noise on patio. Pretty noisy inside. Younger crowd (30’s-40’s). It was a Fri night, 6-8pm, late September, and the place was full.

Service is 5 star. The food is good, great presentation, and a good value. For me, the noise level is too much. But everyone else seemed to be having a great time, so I must be old:).

It was a great meal and ambiance. Place was packed but they got us seated for our reservation right on time. We had a big group and were easily accommodated. Restaurant week was a great value.

This was for a bachelorette party. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of our server but she was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the restaurant and the menu and everything was delicious. I should’ve done half s bowl or split with someone so I wasn’t so full but I know that for next time !

The service was sub par. The moment we didn’t order cocktails our entire service changed. We were rushed through dinner and it wasn’t an experience I was pleased with. The busiers were great and kind but that is about it.

Food was great but we were annoyed when we got the bill and saw charges for add-ons. Our waitress never told us there would be up-charges on our order. If we knew it was an additional charge to order corn as a side we would have never ordered that.

High noise level---another way of a restaurant saying 'Energetic'. To a customer it means 'too dang loud'--We didn't like yelling over the music! Everything else is excellent!!!!!

We were in the corner booth, which was very warm so a little uncomfortable for all of us. The food, particularly the rice & beans, where barely even warm. It was practically warmer at our table than the food was, which was not a good thing!

Wait staff were very attentive, but no overly so. Drinks and chips refilled timely. The carnitas were excellent. We especially like the combination of orange, chile and salsa verde.

We sat on the patio and the music was LOUD. We were sitting under a speaker. We aksed the server if the music could be turned down. Told not a possibilty as B.T. likes the vibe of loud music. Also, after being seated chips and salsa were brought to the table. I advised the server that I had a gluten alergy and asked if the chips were GF. She said no and brought other chips. There were 4 of us at the table and when a second bowl of chips were brought again I asked if the were GF she said she forgot. This kind of shook my confidence of how safe it might be to eat a B.T.

The noise level and music level were way too loud. We could not hear each other talking. I would never go back on a Saturday night. Would probably only consider outside dining there in the future. In addition, it's ludicrous that a Mexican restaurant serves Cuervo Gold in most of their margaritas. Order with caution. Otherwise, the food is good.

Blanco has the best happy hour! Our food, drinks, and service were outstanding. Only negative is that it can get pretty loud at this location.

Kitchen lost our ticket. We all realized it after repeated updates from wait staff that food would be out in a “few min”. Ordered a salad with chicken and it was served incorrectly (had a request for dressing separate) but really it was tasteless although not inedible. They comp’d dessert for the 75 min wait to get food. They tried which was the best thing about the evening.

Made a reservation for my wife’s birthday at 8:15pm. Could not be seated until 8:45. The staff offered to buy the group a round of drinks which was most appreciated. From there it took 20 minutes to place an order for food and another 30 minutes for it to arrive after that. Several of the dishes that were supposed to be served hot were not even warm. Overall it did not feel like a special experience at all.

Delicious food at very fair prices. I wish they would turn down the lounge music a bit though, it’s hard to have a conversation without yelling in there.
